So... Microsoft has finally realized that Vista isn't doing so great.
Which is funny, since it seems the only way they've been able to get people
to buy Vista is by foircing it on them through computer vendors (if you
don't build your own, it's pretty hard to get a new computer without Vista
on it), and even at that most people then go through the effort necessary to
"downgrade" to XP.

Anyways. They recently complained about Apple's "noisy" Get A Mac ad
campaign, which beats on Windows generally and Vista in particular. I
personally think the ads are clever and entertaining, though the guys at Ars
say they can be a little annoying. Windows is apparently trying to recruit
people like Seinfeld, Will Ferrell, and Chris Rock to pitch the Good News of
Vista. I'm personally not a big fan of any of those comedians (or
most comedians in general, believe it or not), but I'm probably not the
sway-audience they're targetting. Still, I don't think even Seinfeld could
out-funny John Hodgman. I mean, really.
